      St. Tudwal, Bishop
      --------------------------
      (also known as Tudwal, Tual, , Tugdualus, Tudgualus)
      also commemorated 1 December

      Tugdual - pron. TOO-dwahl

      Died c. 564. One of the Seven Patron Saints of Brittany. The Welsh monk
      Tugdual was one of the sons of King Hoel I Mawr (the Great). He
      travelled to Ireland from his father's home in Britain to learn the
      scriptures before becoming a hermit on Ynys Tudwal (St.Tudwal's Isle
      East) off the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales. He later emigrated to Leon
      in Brittany and settled at Lan Pabu with some seventy-two followers.
      Here he established a large monastery under the patronage of his cousin,
      King Deroch of Domnonee. From here, Tugdual travelled throughout
      Brittany evangelising the local population. He founded the Monastery of
      Val Trechor at Treguier and had the foresight to go to Paris and have
      his land grants ratified by King Childebert of the Franks. The monarch
      insisted that Tugdual be made Bishop of Treguier where he is still
      venerated, especially around Leon. It was at Treguier that hy died in
      564. His shrine can still be seen in the Cathedral.

      Three places in the Lleyn Peninsula (Cardigan Bay) in Carnarvonshire
      perpetuate his memory. Saint Levan, founder of Killeven in Ireland,
      wrote the life of Saint Tugdual after his travels in Brittany.

      Saint Tudwal's Island East (Ynys Tudwal) has a ruined chapel, which is
      mentioned in the tax rolls of 1291. His relics are claimed by Treguier,
      Laval, and Chartres. This is believed to have been his original
      hermitage (Attwater 2, Benedictines, Coulson, Farmer). (He may identical
      to a saint with a similar name on December 1; some calendars also show
      his feast on December 2.) In art, Saint Tudwal is depicted as a bishop
      holding a dragon with his stole.

      Having left thy native Wales/ thou didst serve God in Brittany, O Father
      Tudwal,/ and both by thy zealous preaching and thy piety thou didst win
      souls for Christ./ Wherefore we hasten to thee, O radiant Hierarch,/
      that thou wouldst intercede for us that our souls may be saved.
